My old Henry is still really good, I don't know why people go overboard about Dysons, I've also got a Sebo which I (and John Lewis from where I bought it) would also recommend.

The numatic/henry machines are really good. My wife got rid of our numatic and got a dyson, forever buying spares.

I have a Lidl wet and dry one which is OK for the money. Am thinking of building a dust extraction system in the shop with it, any previous self build experience would be useful. Thanks

We bought a Henry nearly five years ago to be used during our house renovation. Having stripped back the house, rewired, replumbed and chopped and change walls, our Henry took am awful lot of punishment with rubble and other general building mess not to mention several trips unaided down the stairs. It's still going strong now and use in garage and for the cars. We ditched the bags very early on and used just the filter with occasional shake or wash. Tough little thing.

Never used it on carpets or pet hair etc as upgraded to something more fancy but as a work horse it hasn't let us down yet.

Actually I notice there is a difference in bag quality.

I must have replaced 4 in the last two weeks because some rubble tore through it and made a mess of the inside. Bought other bags from Amazon a few days ago and seem a lot better.

I bought a re-usable bag for my Henry from eBay, it's a heavy duty cloth with a zipper for emptying.I'll see if I can find a link to one.

Edit: this one, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/To-fit-Henry ... 3f43337c90

Mrs Wobs hates the Henry, as its big and cumbersome. And an upright has brushes to pick things up.

I find its great for DIY debris of course, and given we're in an old house, this is a good thing! However, we also have a manual sweeper, and a handheld vac for smaller jobs.

Used it last night to sort out the kids' mess, and was fine, so food, plaster, or fluff, is usually ok.

Had it about 10 years I think, and still going strong. Probably just jinxed us.

The Henry was a bit expensive for my DIY needs so I got the Titan equivalent from screwfix a few years ago (https://www.screwfix.com/p/titan-ttb351vac-1400w-20ltr-wet-dry-vacuum-cleaner-240v/56239). Sits in the shed most of the time but great for sucking up saw dust, plasterboard and nails! Also good for cleaning the car.
